Meet Vitalik The Rapper, Founder Dropping Bars…Justin Sun, Anyone?
The cryptocurrency space has been
focused on adoption, technology developments, price movements, and others.
While the above mentioned are very important, it is also good to have some fun,
after all, we deserve it periodically.
Vitalik The Rapper Sets the Stage on Fire
Vitalik Buterin has become a
household name in the crypto space for his role in the creation of Ethereum and
contributions to other aspects of the blockchain space. While he is known for
his coding skills, little did we know that he has some hidden talents as a
The crypto space had to wait until
this year’s EDCON conference to realize that Vitalik could have had a career as a rapper
if he wasn’t that interested in coding. From what we saw at the conference, it
is possible that he could still become a rapper when he finally decides to
leave the blockchain space (which we hope is never).
Cryptocurrency enthusiasts applauded
his efforts, with most of them recognizing the toughness involved in rapping
with an accent and doing that at a conference. Some users meanwhile humorously
stated that this what happens when you code too much, with Vitalik known for
always talking about crypto and their development.
It is safe to say that Buterin and Justin Sun,
Tron founder, are two of the most talked about cryptocurrency personalities.
The two have been involved in criticism and drama regarding their projects over
the past few months.
While Buterin was rapping on stage,
Sun is already working his way towards becoming a celebrated musician. Late
last month, Loom Network, a dApp scaling solution on the Ethereum blockchain
tweeted a hilarious picture of Sun as a hip-hop star.
“Today marks the launch of Loom Records! ?? Yes, we have decided to enter the music business to speed up blockchain
adoption. And we’re honored to produce @justinsuntron’s debut hip-hop album
#EnterTheSun as our first EP,” the tweet reads.
The crypto enthusiasts on the thread
were amused by the picture, tagging it as a great April Fool’s joke. While Justin
Sun has not revealed any of his musical talents, it would be interesting to see
what he displays and if he could match the musical genius of Buterin.
It’s Good to Take A Break and Have Some Fun
The relationship between Buterin and
Sun has been entertaining at best, and the crypto community has watched keenly
over the past few months. Earlier this month, Sun revealed that there could be a possible
partnership between Tron and Ethereum as they seek ways to improve the
This came as a shock to the crypto
space as Sun has attacked Buterin and Ethereum for a while now, tagging the
network slow. It was, therefore, a surprise when Sun announced that the two
could work together before the end of the year. He even admitted that the
competition in the smart contract and dApp space would make them better.
While it is still unclear the nature
of their partnership or if it will happen anytime soon, it is essential that
personalities such as Buterin are taking the time to have fun. The crypto
community has shared in with the joke. Vitalik will go back to the business of
developing Ethereum, but we are now confident he can entertain us at any time.
